Default are hungry-girl recipes actually good?

What have your experiences been? Any recommendations?

I've often wondered that myself. Although I'm not much of a cook so I've never ventured to try any myself.

I have made the nachos (with the boca chili etc) and the chicken fingers (with fiber one breading) AWESOME! They really are a great substitute. I think I will try the mozz stix recipe soon.

Also the onion rings recipe looks really yummy/fun to make.

I'm really interested in how the mozzarella sticks turn out, be sure and let us know!

I haven't known about Hungry-Girl long and haven't had a chance to make any of the recipes. Would like to try several though.

I like lots of the Hungry Girl recipes, I'm now a total Fiber One convert and some of their Starbucks swaps are very tasty. I can't begin to understand their love of the Shirataki noodles, though, they still taste and smell like chewy fish to me.

I tried a variation of the jalapeno poppers and was disappointed. First, I don't use anything containing aspartame, so the fiber-one was out. My friend had some Wheatibix cereal which I thought would work because it has the same "type" of taste. I didn't use ff cream cheese because that is just nasty, but I used a mixture of goat cheese and KerryGold reduced fat cheddar. The cheese filling and the peppers were good, but I didn't like the fact that they tasted like they were coated in cereal, because, well, they were coated in cereal. Also the cheese filling leaked out of the peppers. But it is giving me some ideas of how to modify the recipe to be more to my liking.
Hungry-girl recipes do anything and everything to take away fat and calories; that is what they are all about, but sometimes they advocate things that I consider to be non-foods to accomplish this.

I liked the jalapeno poppers and the chicken nuggets, and the pie crust made with Fiber One cereal. I also loved their Oreo Pie recipe. Granted, some of their recipes (like the Oreo Pie one) are converted junk foods, but occasionally that's what I want, so I do it, and still stay within reason on my calorie count.

I LOVE the alternative bagels they recommened (westernbagels.com I believe is the site). 100 calories and like 5-7g fiber!

I looooooooove the starbucks swaps! I actually work at a starbucks a few nights a week and I premix all the liquid ingredients and home and put them in a little picture and use the blender at work to make my swap. I still only have one a week, cause it IS just converted junk food w/ no nutritional value, but at least I don't feel guilty about it.

Yeah, it's true: a lot of the recipes use "Fake food." I'm really not a fan of fake food -- i.e. things like cool whip, splenda, etc.

However some of the recipes are more natural/less creepy and really do look good.

So please keep posting your reviews here!

Oh and also I have tried Vitamuffins and they are pretty tasty and satisfying -- but very expensive.

^^ I agree with you - vitamuffins are delicious!! But sooo expensive!

I haven't really tried any of the recipes even though I read the site everyday!
I sent the link to my best friend and her husband recently (he thought it was a porn site with that name - haha) and they have already tried a bunch of the recipes. They like the chicken strips and the reese's PB cups.
I want to try the no-noodle lasagna they just had up this week!
